Suppose a function is defined for an abstract type (say
AbstractMyType), and it is overridden for a concrete subtype (say
MyType<:AbstractMyType). The overriding function does extra work on top of the work implemented in the overridden function, so I would like to call the overridden function inside the overriding function. Is this possible?
The following code describes what I would like to achieve:
abstract type AbstractMyType end function myfun(x::AbstractMyType) # function to be overridden below ... end struct MyType<:AbstractMyType ... end function myfun(x::MyType) # override above function myfun(x::AbstractMytype) # this line is something I want to achieve # Do more work ... end
